I for one would welcome having this info not as a 'message box' but
rather as a status bar information (like ones you get on certain dynamic
sites: this page was rendered in %d ms (options readout %d ms, render %d ms) )
(and an option to enable it or not, somewhere in Lazarus Tools).

Or have just the timing of reading fpc options added into the Help->About Lazarus?
(and so just the rendering of options timed on the compiler pages and
reported on the status bar)

My £0.02p.
